Some being in my inner-mind is telling me I had more points than the last time I checked.

Of course, I'm probably wrong. Instead of "12579 cr Points" from this post onwards, I could have sworn I had about 3k more; to make it "15579 cr Points".

Is it possible to lose points? If not, then I'm going insane or something so minimal.

I don't actually know anything, but I'm guessing that if posts etc are deleted for whatever reason the points they gave would be removed too?

Or you're just crazy.

Posts that'd accumulate to 3k points would be... nuts.

I may just be nuts.

I am 80% sure that I read somewhere that if you are actively trying to earn points that you can get in trouble for it.

If I got in trouble, I'd more than likely get a word from a mod in my inbox about it.

I'm probably just nuts and assumed the impossible.

Moved this over to support because it's a support type question...

Anyway, it is possible to lose points. Since you get points for making posts and comments, if those are removed, you'd lose the points that those granted you. We don't always mention stuff like that to folks - if it's really minor, or as part of a sweep of other stuff (like this morning I deleted about half a dozen comments about a forum topic title being spelled wrong.. but there was no need to warn folks about that individually). 3000 does seem like a lot, though. There may be something else going on there, but it wouldn't be related to moderator actions, most likely.

.. of course, once you're past 500 CR points, all they matter for is marking off how active you are on the site. You can't really spend them on anything, and all locked abilities are unlocked by the 500 CR point mark.
